Following the objectives set out in the UfM Water Declaration, and under the umbrella of the UfM Task Force, the three organisations are currently preparing a joint "Water-Energy-Food-Ecosystem Nexus"publication in the form of a Nexus Atlas. In order to grasp the current status of the region, the baseline analysis will be complemented by a collection of best practices in assessments of the Water-Energy-Food-Ecosystem (WEFE) Nexus. We, therefore, call on interested parties to suggest useful examples by completing the 'Water-Energy-Food-Ecosystem Nexus – Best practice example' form below and sending it to: JRC-UFM-GWPMed-ATLAS@ec.europa.eu.

Global challenges require joint action on the part of the international community, and preferably the whole international community. Therefore, the EU seeks to use its diplomatic tools in order to get everyone on board, particularly the biggest countries, and to support the most vulnerable ones.

Modelling the interactions between energy, water and food is important because the three resources are interdependent, and changes in one sector, as a result of policies, climate change or growing demands, can have serious implications for the others.

The PRIMA consultation for the preparation of the next PRIMA Annual Work Plans 2020 and 2021 (AWPs) and related calls for proposals has now launched at
